Do you want to look pretty in your photographs? Do you envy your friend who always steals the charm with her photogenic looks?

While some people are photogenic naturally, here are few tips to look good in photographs. Just follow these guidelines and you would never have to run from a camera again.



Wear clothes that fit you well and bring out your frame gracefully. Choose colors that complement your skin tone, your hair color and your overall personality. For instance, black makes people look thinner.

Don’t flaunt clothes with patterns all over as they are likely to take away the attention from your face. If there are blemishes on your skin hide those using concealers. Photographs are memories frozen in time and they cannot be altered.



Choose angles and position which make you look good. For a flattering look, position your body in a way so that 3/4 th of it faces the camera. Place one foot in front of another and move one shoulder closer to the camera. This pose works on most people.

Use a digital camera so that you can check which pose suits you best. While posing, stick your neck up and tilt your head slightly. It will accentuate your facial features and will look flattering in the photograph.

Don’t freeze your body in odd postures. Relax and look calm in the photograph. If you will get nervous in front of the camera, you will end up posing a bad look in the picture. So just relax and take a deep breath, relax your stiff shoulders and strike a brilliant pose.



Artificial and forced smiles don’t look too flattering. When the photograph is about to be taken, think of happy thoughts, for instance think of your child who makes you happy. A genuine smile looks beautiful. Time your smile so that you don’t have to hold your facial muscles in the same position for long. If you don’t have perfect teeth, try a subdued smile.

Let your eyes express your emotions. While smiling think of something that brings blush on your cheek and makes them look rosy. These are unconscious reactions but with a little practice you can bring them on whenever needed. Relax your lips and don’t pout.

Choose a backdrop with a beautiful landscape if you are on a vacation. While clicking pictures in office or at home, pick a location with appropriate lighting or else your pictures will look dark. Don’t look distracted and stay calm for the flattering photogenic look.
